Textile fragment with rosettes in dotted circles, flower-heads, and dotted tendrils

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A band of rosettes in beaded circles, with a single row of beads along either side, as in Cat. no. 318 [EA1990.327]; a triangular design field with two large flower-heads, one smaller rosette with twelve petals, as well as thick, beaded tendrils alternating with rosettes. The latter design does not connect visually to the former. The band and beaded tendrils are red or brown against a white ground, while the flowers are white against a red ground.

    Selvedge. The pattern of beaded tendrils and small rosettes was printed with a block that was 12.5 cm. long. The fragment shows more dye saturation on the reverse than on the surface.
